With advanced techniques and personalized care, our experienced dental team is dedicated to restoring the health of your gums and ensuring your overall oral wellness.

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common oral condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the gum tissues. It is caused by bacteria and plaque buildup on the teeth, leading to the formation of pockets between the gums and teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can progress and result in tooth loss, bone loss, and compromise your overall oral health.

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Receding gum line
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Changes in your bite or how your teeth fit together

Comprehensive Gum Disease Treatment

Our gum disease treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each patient and may include the following procedures:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: This deep cleaning treatment removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smoothens the tooth roots to promote gum tissue reattachment.
  • Gum Surgery: In advanced cases, gum surgery may be necessary to reduce pocket depth and eliminate bacteria from hard-to-reach areas.
  • Antibiotic Therapy: Antibiotics may be prescribed to control infection and promote healing.
  • Laser Therapy: Laser technology is used to target and eliminate bacteria from infected gum tissues.

Prevention and Ongoing Care

Preventing gum disease is crucial for maintaining a healthy smile. Our dental team will provide you with personalized oral hygiene instructions and guidance on maintaining good gum health. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to detect and address gum disease in its early stages.
